MoCo's IG Presses For Disability Retirement Fix
Montgomery County's independent inspector general this afternoon issued the third in a series of reports on the police disability retirement system that has been criticized for lax oversight.
The inspector general's latest memo backs key provisions of legislation pending before the County Council that would change the way disability applications are filed and reviewed.
Changes through legislation and policy are necessary, according to the memo, to "ensure deserving employees" receive benefits and that the "program is protected from abuse."
But some council members have said they want to put the legislation on hold to give the County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) time to first try to negotiate changes with police union leaders.
